Why not go full physical anon? Don't like punching things until they die? No need for SP when you can use health
>>
>>274563593
Have you actually played the game? The extra HP and SP you get from sub Personas regenerates after every battle. And when you strike a weakness or get a critical attack, your next skill costs no HP or SP.
If you're worried about healing, then heal with the free boosted spells (you also get priority from this) or use healing items.
The game isn't bad in the slightest.

Magic seems to be useful only for hitting all enemies with an elemental weakness and status effects. Physical attackers can do almost everything else including hitting single target's elemental weaknesses, almighty attacks, and buffing or debuffing, as well as binding.

Getting killed in one turn when you get jumped is sadly normal. Save often. Don't get jumped.
When you first get to Tokyo was the worst part of the game for me. Just keep trying to find new places. Don't feel the need to complete every sidequest if you don't want to, they're REALLY not fun, especially before you get your hands on Estoma Sword.
There are a few places where you have to talk to somebody for progression to advance. Talk to everybody in each bar, there's a few places where you have to talk to some random guy with a random quest.
It got much better for me once I found the Black Samurai.

So I'm playing thought SMTIV and really enjoying it. Why does everyone else hate it? Though to be fair i have came from a P3P and P4G background
>>
>>274568646
Unfortunately, it's about the same.
>>
>>274574010
It wasn't very difficult and some of the redesigns were shite. It wasn't a bad game though.
>P3P
If you have any way to play FES do it, it's way better.
>>
>>274574010
The dungeon designs are super lame compared to, say, Nocturne. This wouldn't bother you at all because P3+4 has randomized floors instead of real dungeons.
The combat is all-or-nothing with the Smirk system and no defense stat. Boss battles are too short and you're either completely destroyed or they feel too easy.

I've played a good amount of MegaTen and I still enjoyed it quite a bit though.
>>
>>274574010
>Why does everyone else hate it?
remember that /v/ IS NOT everyone.
>>
>>274574010
Questionable designs for some of the demons, somewhat unbalanced difficulty that gets easy at times. Still a great game.

>>274574902
Not him, but I find it impossible to go to FES after P3P. the gameplay is just so much better. FES does have the worst gameplay of the entire Persona series.
>>
I really hope they don't keep Smirking in SMT5. What an obnoxious mechanic.
>>
>>274574902
>>274575428
What are the differences between the two?
>>
>>274575673

P3P has full party control and FeMC. IMO P3P is far inferior to FES, but full party control is easily something that can push you more towards P3P.

If it's the first time you're playing it, I'd recommend FES over P3P.

>not wanting to be a smug asshole when fighting demons

>>274575618

>>274575428
FES isn't that hard. Considering it's a really heavily story-driven game being able to see everything makes it much better.
>>274575673
FES has 3D scenes and animated cutscenes but you have to use the crappy AI for battles.

Take this comparison and apply it to the whole game. I don't think P3P is bad but FES presents everything much better.

>Pretty easy after you get to Tokyo
>Very little variety amongst the demons aside from their designs
>Dungeons were incredibly simplistic
>Fusion system is even easier to abuse than usual
>Smirking makes most fights really one-sided
>Partner AI was awful. The Minotaur and Asura fight is a perfect example of this
>Every route except Neutral is a disappointment
>Awful demon redesigns with like two or three exceptions
I still had fun with it though. Just kind of a disappointment considering how hyped I was for it.

FES has anime cutscenes, 3D models outside of battle, and exploration of the town like P4. It also has an epilogue in the form of The Answer. A lot of people hate The Answer for grinding but I enjoyed it, I only had to grind a single time for Thor's heart item.
However, you can't control your party members directly in FES. Portable also has a female MC option.

I finished P3P like a year or two back, I've no interest to go back.

Obviously, but any time I see these threads they always go on about how SMTIV was bad and how either Strange Journey is better or something else in the series. Then people shit on the Persona players and the Persona players just wallow around in Waifu stuff

It wouldn't be bad if it didn't completely turn battles around. If it had the exact same mechanics but paired with a fucking defense state it would be a fine, small little addition to press turn. As it stands, combat in 4 is too much of a glass cannon, DPS race for all intents and purposes and smirking just emphasized that.

Perhaps my greatest advantage was I wasn't all that hyped about it, my friend into all these Atlus games just recommended it.

What does smirking even do?

Cancels your weaknesses and gives you really really high dodge/hit.

>>274577484

60% more damage
Guarantees your next physical attack to be a crit
Nullifies all weaknesses

You will probably instant die to any physical attack if an enemy is smirking.

Increases their damage done, increases crit rate by a ton, and increases their dodge rate by a TON until the enemy's next action.

It's definitely a good entry into the series. I'll give it that much. If you're interested in trying other games I'd recommend Nocturne next. It's pretty similar.
